Every year, students at USC Upstate spend their Fall and Spring Breaks in service of others. Alternative Breaks is a service learning program that Upstate offers to students. In the past, students have gone to places like Atlanta, Georgia, Tennessee, and many other places.
This year, the group going will be participating in disaster relief from Hurricane Florence.
The group will leave on Thursday the 17th of October and will return on Sunday the 20th of October. The group will be hitting the coast to assist in clean up the coast, distributing meals, and spreading hopefulness to a community rebuilding. It is not just work, there are opportunities to have fun.
Hurricane Florence began out in the Atlantic Ocean. It grew into a Category 4 before hitting Cape Verde and Bermuda. It made landfall in North and South Carolina as category one storm. The coastal regions of these two states need help in the recovery process from Florence.
In the wake of the hurricane, a total of 54 people lost their lives as a result of Florence. Those who wish to participate in Alternative Fall Break can contact Dr. Deb Kladivko at firstname.lastname@example.org for further questions and concerns.
